Nov-08-08  jerseybob: What a wipeout by Kashdan, at that time one of the world's best.

  ChessCoachClark: Interesting and consecutive pair of tactics-- Clearance tactic with 15. Bxe5, then Trapping with 16. g5 against the Black Knight.
May-07-15  JimNorCal: 16. g5 came as a complete shock to me.
It takes a second to realize that the knight has no squares ...

  tpstar: White to Play and Win after 14 ... fxe6.
Feb-13-20  sfm: Stockfish suggests 15.Kb1, not 15.Lxe5, as the best move. Surprise!

' ... eine kurze kaum beachtete Partie .. , welche höchst belehrend ist. Sie zeigt .. in typischer Weise, welche bösen, nicht mehr gutzumachenden Folgen die Verletzung zweier besonders von Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch stets eindringlich gepredigten .. Eröffnungsgrundsätze mit sich bringt, nämlich der Einsperrung des schwarzen Königsläufers und der Aufgabe des Zentrums. .. wann wird so offensichtlich schlechtes Schach endlich verschwinden? ... .'

from Dr. Eduard Dyckhoff 's popular chess collumn 'Schach für Alle', published in 'Der gerade Weg' (Nr. 16, 1932, p.10)
